Dog & Screen door

Leaving your dog in the camper, how do you protect your screen door?

You could change the screen out to a strong vinyl coated Pet resistant screen that is made to keep pets from going through it. You can buy that kind of screening at Home Depot or from online sources. When you change over to that screen you will need to install it with a smaller diameter spline size as the screening is thicker than the regular screen. Talk to the Snoozy company and see if they can use that instead of the standard screening they put in the door.

Baby gate or the divider from a dog crate.

Sheet of decorative perforated aluminum attached to the lower screen door. Available in various finishes from hardware and home improvement stores.

I agree w/ Jon in AZ
I have also used ( because I had some left over from another project) a piece of plexiglass

the stiffer screen or aluminum grill or whatever won't work very well with the Escape's retractable screen.... but we don't bring our dog camping, nor let her into the Escape.

I trained him not to go through any door without me (or someone) allowing it. This is something that is a great thing in many other situations too.

Depends on the dog. Some are too bullheaded to be stopped by something as trifling as a screen. Some just need to be reminded that there is a screen there, by a piece of tape or something at their eye level.

I reinforced the bottom section of the screen door. If the dog attempts to jump into or out of the camper when the screen door is shut, the screen will not be harmed.

Unless I am coming back within a couple of minutes (I.e. getting something out of the car), I don’t leave the dogs alone in the trailer. I have dog crates in the Tahoe, and that’s where they stay if I need to be away for a while and they can’t come with me.
